Two friends and former Timbers teammates are joining forces to spread the love and do good work together.
Former Timbers Eric Alexander and Joe Bendik may both be with new squads this year, but they are on the same team when it comes to battling cystic fibrosis. Joe’s nephew, Gavin, is battling the disease, and they’re both doing their part to raise awareness and funds. They are offering Timbers jerseys via raffle to a few lucky fans. $5 gives you a chance at one of the player jerseys, $10 gets you two chances, and so on. To participate, click the following Paypal link:
Paypal link to enter–every $5 is worth one chance at a jersey
IMPORTANT: your donation will automatically enter your name in the drawing for both Joe’s and Eric’s jerseys. If you are only interested in being in the drawing for one particular player’s jersey, please note it in the comments.
Entries close at 5pm on May 2nd, when the drawing will be held at the fanladen. Winner need not be present to win. Enter early and enter often! It’s for a good cause, and you just might wind up with a jersey from a pretty cool former Timbers player.
All proceeds from the raffle will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at the Timbers Army page here:
This money will support research that will ultimately help folks like Gavin in their battle against cystic fibrosis.
And by the way, you can also register to join the team or donate directly at the CFF link above, if you want in the running for other cool items, including two tickets in section 118 and $50 in concessions for the 7/13 match against the LA Galaxy.
